Forest To Pay Former Owner

Championship club Nottingham Forest have been ordered to pay former owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi £4.2m after a court battle related to the club's sale. When current owner Evangelos Marinakis took over in 2017, debts of £40m owed to the previous parent company and an ex-director were written off in the sale.

 

Gabon Appoint French Coach

Gabon have turned to Frenchman Patrice Neveu as their new national team head coach to replace Daniel Cousin. Neveu has previously managed Niger, Guinea, DR Congo and Mauritania in Africa, as well as Haiti and Laos.

 

Alei Banned For 10 Years

Former South Sudan FA president Chabur Goc Alei has been hit with a 10 year ban from all football-related activities by FIFA, along with a 500,000 Swiss francs fine. Alei was found "guilty of having misappropriated Fifa funds, as well as having offered gifts or benefits, in violation of the Fifa Code of Ethics."

 

Ghana Name Ayew Skipper

Andre Ayew has been confirmed as the new national team captain of Ghana in place of Asamoah Gyan. Gyan had quit international football after being stripped of the captaincy, only to reverse his decision after speaking to the nation's president, Nana Akufo-Addo. Gyan has been placated with the title of "General Captain", whatever that means.

 

Bayern Want Sane

According to club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bayern Munich will try to sign Leroy Sane from Manchester City in the summer. Bayern are losing long-term wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery in the summer and are looking to replace one of them with Sane. Rummenigge said: "We will try. I can not promise whether it will succeed. We already had the idea when he was still with Schalke. But at that time we did not have a guaranteed regular place for him. Robben and Ribery were top of the top three years ago."
